The 2010 Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP 2010) was completed against an uncertain and varied policy backdrop at both a global and local level. At a global level the modest outcome from Copenhagen drew differing responses from national governments with uncertainty about a binding international agreement causing some countries to stall in their policy progress and others to push ahead. In Australia policy uncertainty was fuelled by changes in leadership of both major political parties, the inability of the Government to pass its Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme (CPRS) and finally, an election ultimately won by a minority Labor Government. In contrast, New Zealand pushed forward with material climate change policy, in line with China, the European Union, Japan and South Korea, passing legislation to amend and expand its emissions trading scheme, and resulting in the introduction of stationary energy, liquid fuels and industrial processes sectors from 1st July 2010.
